Concrete and Brick Work in Old Town Fairfax Begins 8/8

Post Date:07/28/2017

Replacement of curb ramps and entrance aprons in Old Town Fairfax will begin August 8. The overall project to replace curb ramps and aprons on University Drive from Sager Avenue to Route 236/Main Street, and On Main Street from Route 123/Chain Bridge Road to East Street, is expected to take up to four weeks. Information: 703-385-7810.

Work will be conducted on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., excluding holidays — however, bricklaying also may take place on Saturdays to allow ramps and entrances to be reopened as soon as possible.  

This work will take place in phases to maintain pedestrian access to all buildings. During work hours, lane closures will be in place and at least one lane of traffic will remain open in each direction on Main Street and University Drive.

Phasing for University Drive is shown in the image below. Each phase is expected to take two to three days and will be completed before moving to the next.
